Final WW1 Anzac Day Centenary Services

This year’s 2018 Anzac Day services will be the last of the special Centenary Commemoration services remembering all those who served in World War 1 and especially those who paid the Supreme Sacrifice in 1918.

The Weekly Times will pay tribute in a special World War 1 commemorative edition next week acknowledging all those who offered their service to their “God, King and Country” and the many who laid down their lives paying the supreme sacrifice for their fellow countryman and woman.

The Weekly Times readers are invited to pay their particular tributes in honour of family members or others in our columns next week. Send tributes to: TWT Anzac Day tribute, PO Box 123 Ryde 1680 or email at [email protected] or go to our website – weeklytimes.com.au – and fill out the special Anzac Tribute form on the home page 2018 ANZAC DAY SERVICES
